The Robins Pass Through Atlanta

Early this morning as I peered out the side windows of the front foyer I noticed a lot of movement. There was a large flock of robins on the front lawn.  I started counting 1, 2, 3, 4,5,6,…..14 in all!  These cheerful fellows were a welcome sign of spring after the recent cold snap last weekend.

They would make a hurrying few steps forward and abruptly stop.  This one cocked his head and turned it toward the ground, then he deftly pulled a worm from the top layer of the grass.  Hey, I hope these feathered friends leave a lot of worms remaining in the lawn so the grass will grow well.

Later in the day while walking my daily constitutional in the back yard I heard them calling to one another. They have a soft chirruping sound that was pleasant to hear. Welcome back to Atlanta and have a safe journey north, robins!
